Importing cars from Germany and other European countries.
We offer our clients assistance: in the purchase a cars from the Auction, from the Auto Dealership or from a Private person.
We can negotiate or bid on the final price for the car, and most importantly, we can help to check the car before purchase, both technically and formally. You can try to buy many reports with the history of the selected vehicle on your own, but these reports do not guarantee anything and are not always up-to-date. It is much better to check the car in person or have it paid to a mechanic or an expert. Such a specialist will check the thickness of the varnish with a meter. Connect the tester via OBDII to the diagnostics of the engine and other systems, perform a road test and provide to the buyer interested in purchase with complete knowledge of the selected car along with up-to-date photos. We have proven contacts with many experts throughout Germany. You can rely on them. The cost of such an inspection is from 80-200 euro plus travel costs.
Our assistance in the transport of cars from Germany and other European countries to you consists in organizing the cheapest possible and at the same time safe inland transport on a tow truck or a Lohr car transporter. Next shipping overseas if needed. The choice of the method of transporting the purchased car remains to be considered. In general, the cost of such transport is cheaper than transporting a car on wheels, a trip for two people with a mechanic friend on an unknown route, because you have to calculate your time, a lot of time, fuel costs, costs of license plates and insurance

Costs of importing a car from Germany. They will depend on many factors, most of all on the choice of a car for a certain price. Additional costs will be added to the already accepted purchase price:
The cost of transport on a tow truck from $100-$900 depending on the distance and kilometers.
The cost of bringing the car “on its own wheels” from $ 100-$3000, but at first after the purchase, we have to go to the German communication office (Zulassungstelle). The car must be deregistered, in addition, we need to obtain new registration plates (short-term ones are up to 50 euros), temporary registration cards (15 euros) and have liability insurance, which costs about 25 euros for 30 days. In order for a car to drive to Port on wheels, it must have current technical examinations.
Official registration fee and provisional registration document: 10-15 euros
The cost of purchasing 5-day number plates with a yellow stripe and liability insurance: 80-140 euro

Customs duty and other taxes , the amount depends on rules in your country
After summing up all costs and comparing local prices in your country with German prices, it remains to make a purchase decision. Many cars offered on the Internet have a post-accident history. This is easily checked with a paint thickness gauge or in vehicle history reports. There are no miracles. Each car has its own value. Also the post-accident ones.The choice is on your side.
